If you want a good price on rotors theres a place in Scarborough called etop line that sells cross drilled rotors for 55 canadian. I found the place on ebay. I paired them up with KVR carbon fiber pads as well. Great combo.

cool, we need ppl taking pics and doing writeups. it's easy as pie, but some first timers like to see pics of whats involved before they try it.

I have the KVR cross drilled rotors and carbon fibre pads on my EF. If you have nice rims, be prepared to clean them regularly. My 16''s get dirty in a couple of days. I'll snap a pic and post them.

i would go with cross drilled just for the fact that slotted rotors wear your brake pads down very quick, and i like the look of them better
